Steak to die for

The food here was awesome. I've never had steak like it. It was very busy when we went and the service was poor. Our food came before our drinks and we got a bit forgotten about. I've never had steak taste quite so good though.

I had a steak with avocado and it was the best steak I've ever eaten. The steak is really tender. I am not a meat lover but I finished that steak. I hope they open a store in Taiwan.

There were 3 of us that went to Hogs Breath . We all had different meals , they were very well presented . We all thought it was great value. The steak I had was cooked to perfection . The fries were the best , even the deserts. Service was wonderful. I will go again .

I ate here twice and the food was great. The steak was very tender, although personally I would have liked a little more seasoning. The fries were fantastic and vegetables excellent. The best part was the owner and staff though. The owner visited with everyone in the restaurant, making sure that everything was well and you could easily spot the... More

It's been a decade or so between visits and I think that is way too frequent. Yes, the steak was tender, the only redeeming feature. Baked potato had almost dried in the middle, salad a bare excuse and the little hard knobs on top of the dish I believe masqueraded as garlic mushrooms. Noise was unbelievable (even taking the wooden... More

If you like American steak house, this is the place to be in Cairns. Staff were really friendly and professional, very welcome atmosphere. The prime steak was good, though was a little disappointed by the calamari. Recommended!

Service wasn't great and they didn't have lots of things available on the menu. Nice desserts. Had to wait ages to be served.

Just like every hogs breathe I have been to great service and amazing food. If you are in cairns and are looking for somewhere familiar to go hogs breathe is the place. It is a little bit of a walk from the water front but is well worth the walk

Well, I've eaten at many hogs breath cafes, usually the one at port Douglas because of its location. (on the pier) My hubby wanted hogs breath for dinner and as we were in cairns we went to the local one. Maybe most of the food is the same at all of them but for the first time I ordered a... More
